Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act ("USERRA")
Some say that USERRA is the most powerful employment law in the nation. This federal law prohibits discrimination and retaliation against members of the military who must take leave to serve our country. Under most conditions, active military personnel are entitled to their position upon return from deployment. Further, USERRA provides more powerful disability protection than the Americans with Disabilities Act for military personnel who are convalescing from service-related injuries or who may need an accommodation at the workplace.
USERRA requires no prior administrative steps to advance a claim. Contact Strelka Employment Law for a consultation.
